    Default are BMW X5s supposed to be fast cars??

    because i got beaten by one earlier, and i'm a bit sore about it still. going up a long straight 3 lane hill, i could see him gaining on me, i thought 'no you don't', so dropped mine to 3rd and buried my foot in the carpet. just before the top of the hill he crept past me. i backed off immediately because he showered me with grit and stones, but if i could have hooked 4th before the top, i'd have had him i think.
    what makes it worse is that he's a smug b*****d, orange faced fake tan nancy boy neighbour of mine, and i hate him more than i did before.
    in mitigation, i was 4 up, and he was 2 up, if i'd booted it a little earlier i'd have been in the power better...
    but....the shame, a damn BMW, and the one i despise most, by one of the people i despise most.
    give me encouraging words, humour me people.

    [too keep this legal and above board, this did, of course, all take place on a private test track, if, indeed, it ever happened at all, which it probably didn't, honestly officer].

    Guess it would be close. Given the scenario you were in I'd say it's just down to him being a much better driver than you.

    HTH.













































    Sorry Mark. Had to be said. I think they are pretty quick TBH.

    They are 260 bhp so even with the extra weight they would be nippy enough but you would pass him at the petrol station

    They do make a 4.4ltr too. I would have thought they would be a licence loser too.
